Dressage, The History

This horsemanship was further developed by Royalty of Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, with its white Lipizzan stallions, is perhaps the most familiar institution dedicated exclusively to the classical art of riding, or Dressage. While once only an activity pursued by royalty, today Dressage has developed into a discipline and competitive sport accessible to all horses and riders.
